Gamestop App won't let me progress past new billing address

Same here. I cant even get the $189.99 one to work and I've been trying since the second the stickied thread posted it.

Just got back from Gamestop in the Bronx. 5 People were there to Pre-order the SNES Classic. The female cashier looked disappointed when I asked to pre-order it, and thankfully I was on time. Got one through Gamestop in person. 

 

Walmart completely screwed me, I contacted my credit card company and they confirmed it was Walmart themselves who canceled my SNES Classic Pre-order.  What scum bags. My order went through and walmart canceled it 5 minutes later claiming there was a payment error which was a lie my card company confirmed. I'm about to give them a nasty call right now. 

You got one didnt you? Quit crying and be happy. Most people didnt get one at all.

Target still showing that bright red "preorder now" button... when they're sold out. Fucking shit, I'm actually pissed right now because I was actually close to getting one. I'm wondering if Target had people reenter their info on purpose to slowdown checkout?:-k

I'm still Fuck in' around with the GS app, but it seems like a Fuck ing futile effort. 

 

My GS store had 12 preorders and I was still the 3rd disappointed person walking out of there. They said employees at other stores and restaurants in the shopping center got the last preorders. I rushed over the millisecond the stickied thread was posted. At least I didn't kill anyone with vehicular manslaughter on the way there, so there is a bright side.

cant get past the cart errors on the gamestop app but looks like the 99 dollar bundle is gone. so next cheapest now is 119

I'd gladly pay $120 for a SNES Classic.

So happy that I got one. I hope you all find ways to get yours, particularly if you want it to play it.

 

Walking into the Gamestop, I had low expectations, but when i heard I was the 6th of the 9 they had... I was elated.

 

You can absolutely tell who intends to re-sell them by how they look though. It's hard to explain, but easy to tell if you see.

 

I was beyond frustrated all night and morning with the dot com's failing... i nearly gave up too, but I saw one of you post about heading to a Gamestop nearby and thought... well, if we're gonna go out, let's go out shooting... so I gave it a shot anyway.

 

Thanks to those of you who are positive and helpful! Peace be with you and your SNES classic.

I'm fine paying $189.99. Just return the BS pack in items to the store when they're delivered.

Even with a preorder in-store, it's hard to be 100 percent confident until we actually hopefully walk out of there with one on the 29th

doubtful, more then likely just site crashes due to traffic. I would guess there will be a few more opportunities randomly thoughout the days ahead on all of these websites. 

I was able to add to cart 2 different random times at target and then unable to checkout.

gamestop.com is completely offline for ... "maintenance" ...

Yeah but some of those people could've been your competition... and you let them get away.

The re-sellers have a certain "used car salesman" look. Like Gus from the Simpsons.

 

Nothing "gamer" about them. They look and act like they're just trying to make a buck. Calls 'em like I sees 'em...

I managed to get one in store after waiting around an hour for the system to come up. My store only got 4 preorders and I was number 3. The clerk started taking down peoples numbers for when it came up, and I was not about to play that game.

 

Honestly though, Ill also admit, this whole thing is so ridiculous.

This is why I just decided to pay the full price with credit card instead of gift cards. Didn't want any trip ups, throwing the gc out or them saying I never preordered.

Was the third person at the GameStop by my work. Walked in and the woman behind the counter said that it wasn't coming up on the POS so they couldn't pre-order it. More people started filing in and she asked us if we wanted to get a callback (lol no) or to wait outside. So we all go outside and wait until another coworker arrives and the line fills up to about 50 people.

 

They provide updates while they try and figure out what's going on and eventually let the first two people inside. Then they ask me and the next person to come inside to order it and I walk up to the POS and they are bundles through the GS Online Cart? I had to order it via a bundle (comes with a book) and got it for $112 when all was said and done.

 

Took forever to get through the cart but eventually it was able to work... so it doesn't seem that this store did brick and mortar preorders as this will be shipped to my house. Does that mean that the store will be getting them at some point? Looking for some clarification here as I'm not familiar with how the newer POS works since I haven't worked there in 7 years.


Ugly, like you.

YESSS!  I rushed over to Gamestop and their computers had crashed over this.  They said it happens every time something big happens, which is nearly every week it seems.  LOL  I was third in line for one and they had only 10 in stock. O_O;  The other buyers were store employees from other places in the strip plaza on their breaks and were a little worried about getting back as it was taking a long time to reboot the PCs.  LOL  I joked that I wanted to buy all 10. LOL  

 

Seriously they should have had at least 100 per store and that still wouldn't have been enough to get any though the day.  The calls was starting flooding in about this as well when I was checking out!  I was worried about them canceling, but the clerk girl said I got there very early and I should get one as this was the first time they had preorders for these.  It's the later waves of pre-orders that sometimes get canceled.  

 

Man, I'm so excited as I really wanted this really badly.  I'll be flipping quite a few tables if they cancel out as I paid in full on it.  GRR!  LOL!  So I'm hoping I do get one, as my next real option is camping out overnight somewhere to get one of the 2 that every store will probably be alloted.  LOL
